Nice deal. Looks like a 56 to me. Would have originally had Universal brakes and high flange hubs, (I think).

FWIW, I've got a set of Universal Centerpull brakes and levers (mod 61 IIRC), and a tubular wheel set that's got a Campy Record high flange hub in the front.
(The rear wheel has a low flange Tipo hub)

that is a great price if indeed it is a pre-1963 Cinelli, assuming no rust or dents.

I'd definitely want to see some more pictures before buying it if you can't see it in person. It's hard to make out in the single picture, but the fork crown looks flat to me and not sloping. Regardless, it looks like a cool and attractively priced Cinelli.

I think that is the classic Cinelli semi-sloping fork crown. The lack of cables means you don't see the clamps. I can't tell whether that is a braze-on for the rear derailleur cable stop or whether the shifters are braze-on or clamp. Those kind of details are important. I have a contact who is a Cinelli specialist if someone is serious. I can put them in contact with him if they get detailed pics. This may be one of those deals where if you ask the questions, you lose the purchase.

Crown is correct. Needs cable stops/clamps all around. From here it looks solid. If I was local, I'd show up with $1k and hope to take it home.

Considering what Cinellis from this era sell for, he might laugh.

I'd like to get a better look at that headset. There's nothing cooler than an early italian.

I emailed the guy and he sent some pictures over. It definitely has the SC crown and it does have the proper clamp-on bits (shifter band, rear derailleur stop, and bottom bracket cable routing). It also has the correct bottom bracket oiling ports and rack eyelets on the drop-outs. It has Universal 68s on it that aren't hooked up (why it doesn't have the clamp-on cable guides).

It looks a bit rough but it is original and doesn't appear to have any dents, dings, or structural rust issues. Cool bike!

Pretty cool. I would love to have it for those special sort of rides. I don't know if I can fit it though... If it is a 58 seat tube, what would the top tube measure?

He stated that it was 56.5 CTC on both the top and seat tubes.

Ah thanks. Might be a bit of a stretch for me.

Pretty cool bike, too bad he didn't have the fenders. A friend of mine got one from the same era (Reynolds 531) a few years ago, in original condition. I don't think he's mind me posting a link to his albums:

I offered him $2k six years ago, and he wisely turned it down.
